The SPELT–3 is designed to help speech-language pathologists elicit specific morphological and syntactic speech structures that may not occur in spontaneous language samples. Using 54 full-color photographs, test items explore use of prepositions, plurals, possessives, tenses, and other morphological structures, plus such elements of syntax as negatives, conjoined sentences, interrogative reversals, and front embedded clauses.
